THE JERK

Dear Ella and Suse,

I've been an unreasonable jerk. I love my best friend with all of my heart and soul. I very recently became irrationally and incoherently angry at him with what, I assume, from his prospective, was no known cause. It really was undeserved. I've apologized, but we're not currently speaking and while I wait and try to mend the rift, I was wondering if there was a novel cure for being a first-class jerk and the despair that follows.

Signed,
The Jerk.
Dear Unreasonable,
We sigh for you in your unreasonableness, while applauding your honesty and forthrightness. We wonder what caused your anger, and have two cures for you - one for the wave of anger that overtook you, and one for the despair following your regrettable ire.
Our cure for your anger is to read The Old Man and the Sea by Ernet Hemingway. Read it aloud. Read it with your friend, if you can get him into the same room as you. Or listen to it on audio, read by the wonderful Donald Sutherland. Be calmed by the repetition of the prose, and be inspired by the message of courage and fortitude against all odds, which makes the backbone of the story. This is a short book - about one and a half hours of reading aloud - and the very act of reading it or hearing it will itelsf be remarkably healing and positive.
To counter your despair and restore your faith in yourself, and in the future of your friendship, read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. This surprising tale will shock you out of your misery and show you that some things are worth walking all the way from Cornwall to Scotland for.
Take your medicine immediately.
Ella and Suse
